Thread Title Etiquette | Read Before Posting Threads

28 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Noticed a few complaints about thread title etiquette so I wanted to make a definitive note of how to format thread titles for future reference:

 

  • Artist name always goes first
  • Album titles are surrounded by 'inverted commas'
    • example Madonna - 'Madame X'
  • Single titles are in "speech marks"
    • example Madonna - "I Rise"
  • Featured artists are added with an f/ before the track name
    • example Madonna f/ Swae Lee - "Crave"
  • Double credits are added with the & symbol before a single title
    • example Madonna & Maluma - "Medellín"
  • Music video threads do not have punctuation
    • example Madonna & Maluma - Medellín

 

Please make sure you also prefix your thread correctly! All the information regarding this is found in the Music Rules popup at the top of the page

Hmm there seems to be disagreement over whether featured artists should be before or after the track title. Does anyone have opinions on this?

THANK YOU :jonny: It always triggers me when titles aren't properly written with commas/marks.

Madonna | Madame X

Posted (edited)

can we use commas for double/multiple lead credits? like 'Madonna, Maluma' to save thread title space (especially in the little marquee at the top of the forum)?
